Last year’s App Store Connect holiday shutdown took place from December 23 to 27. When App Store Connect is shut down, developers can’t submit new apps or updates for review. Apple recently introduced a new set of App Store guidelines that allow developers to contact customers about other payment methods.

The company said that the three key changes to the App Store review guidelines support new features in upcoming OS releases, better protect customers and help apps go through the review process as smoothly as possible.

Among the changes, developers are allowed to communicate with their customers about other payment methods available outside their app.

Another new guideline says that apps may request customer information like name and email, but the request must be optional for the user and shouldn’t prevent them from using the app.
